|Hollywood Offbeat (Steve Randall) - The Trial - Episode 13|
In this filmed series, screen star Melvyn Douglas appeared as a disbarred lawyer who had turned sleuth in an attempt to regain his right to practice law. A suave, mustachioed detective, he greased his way through assorted cases of blackmail and murder before finally reaching his goal - reinstatement as a lawyer - in the final episode. There this short series ended. Prior to it's network run, some episodes of Steve Randall were seen locally under the title of Hollywood Offbeat...

|Life with Luigi - The Dance (1953)|
After the first series of "Life with Luigi", starring J. Carroll Naish, was cut short in January 1953, due to problems with the sponsor (General Food), a "New Life with Luigi" started on April 9, 1953. The all new cast consisted of Vito Scotti, Thomas Gomez and Muriel Landers playing "Rosa". Again it lasted but a few months. Sorry for the poor picture quality.
